Hope you all had a wonderfully blessed Thanksgiving! Our house was full and it was oh-so fun! This was our first holiday in our new house and we. are. grateful! My sister-in-law and I did some brainstorming on paint color and room designs. We cooked up some fun projects! And a very, VERY big fresh bird for Thanksgiving.
I had a minor accident with a knife and my finger first thing Thursday morning so I called in extra kitchen support. That bird was a doozy and we needed three people to get it rinsed, dried and buttered (plenty of butter!) I use my mom’s recipe and cook it breast down, stuffed with apples, pineapple, celery and onions.
My little ones enjoyed all the extra attention. Definitely had some tears after they left.
I very much enjoyed no-computer-just-family long weekend! I was busy enjoying the constant fellowship so I wasn’t too hot in the photo-mama arena. I didn’t even take any at my parents for our big family get-together there. ~sad face~
But I will leave you with this little glimpse of our holiday…
Deep in thought.
Telling great-grandpa all about volcanos.
Ahh! So glad these two got along this visit! Uncle Ben looks too much like her daddy for her usual comfort! But together they built many towers (and she smashed them) Friday night.
The Magic School Bus is a new hit around here.
Operation Big (turkey) Bird.
We were loving this beautiful late November weather, although I am partial to getting some snow about this time of year. I think it’s in my Minnesota born blood!
Always happy to be hearing a story!
My faithful kitchen helper… as long as it involves extra playing in the water, of course!
